The much-hyped Thompson Miami Beach, from A-list designer Martin Brudnizki, is a unique combination of Art Deco skyscraper and 1950s glass-and-steel tower. The 380-room hotel is an avant-garde sanctuary with a soft, sandy beach in its backyard and Seagrape, a “Floridian brasserie” by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein. Small plates and main dishes at the restaurant include items such as crispy veal sweetbreads with smoky stewed cranberries, and whole Florida snapper with recado verde and potato puree. Artistic yet minimalist guestrooms and suites offer pillowtop beds on low-rise wooden platforms, pops of seafoam-green and tangerine, gourmet minibars, balconies with views of the Atlantic, and luxurious baths with rain showers and oversize robes. Lounges serve sophisticated cocktails, including the 1930s House, a throwback to a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Strut your way around the hotel’s two sexy pools, where DJs or live musical acts provide the entertainment and set the scene. Guests can also unwind in the spa (there are six outdoor cabanas) or with a treatment in the 1950s-style salon from the renowned Miami-based Junior & Hatter.
In the Area
Entertainment options in the immediate area are limited, but a number of casual eateries can be found just across the bridge, as well as Café Avanti, an Italian restaurant and wine bar. For a sizzling night out, the LIV nightclub is just a few blocks to the north, or you can hop in a cab and go to South Beach’s Story nightclub for some of the hottest celebrity performers. Directly across Biscayne Bay is the Wynwood Arts District, a unique Miami neighborhood overflowing with stunning galleries. About a mile to the south, visitors will find the Bass Museum of Art, and a few blocks past that is the New World Symphony, located at the end of the Lincoln Road Mall shopping center.
How to Get There
Had an awesome experience again at the confident! Pools and beach service were amazing even when super busy! Special thanks goes to Gladis, Carlos( super cool towel art), and Ana! They made for a wonderful time! Will be back during my next stay at Miami for sure!
Perfect on the beach location. Pricey but I guess everything is on the beach. Rooms are small and no tubs. Restaurant, pool, lobby and public spaces are nice. Local taxes, and beach fee are crazy. Never left the property so can't comment on the surroundings.
We really enjoyed our stay. From the beginning to the end all our needs were met. Loved the beach area and service we received. The restaurant Bird &Bone was great with a great selection of and spirits.
The beach experience is amazing. I live in Miami, and the Confidante beach is my go to always. The service is amazing and the drinks are always perfect. The mint julep is to die for. Juan at the beach is always helpful and quick on his service. Would highly recommend.
Checked in earlier today and this is the Confidante's idea of an Oceanview room (see photo). The bellhop tried to correct the situation to no avail (thx for trying). If you book an Oceanfront, demand that it be an East or North view. The pool and beach areas are nice. Hopefully the next four days are better going forward.
